Almost a year ago, I began noting the similarities between the USA under President Barack Hussein (Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho) Obama and the cult movie Idiocracy. Now, somewhere behind me on the curve, others are beginning to notice. Also, Here… “10 Things Idiocracy Predicted That Are Already Happening.” Here’s a sampling:
- Scientists tell us the human race is actually becoming more stupid. It is estimated that average intelligence has dropped 14 points since the Victorian Era; primarily because, in the cradle-to-grave-welfare-state, intelligence is no longer an evolutionary benefit.
- In the movie, “The English language had deteriorated to a hybrid of Hillbilly, Valley Girl, Inner-City slang, and various grunts.” That is certainly happening as text-speak invades conversational speak, crude idiots pepper every sentence with the f-word, the VPOTUS describes passage of terrible legislation as a “BFD”, and yesterday, the president of a Labor Union described the potential presidential candidacy of Sen. Elizabeth Warren as “It don’t get no better than this.“
- Entertainment consists primarily of Television shows about dumb people humiliating themselves. Tell me there’s an intellectual difference between “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo” and “Ow! My Balls.” And in our present day, we have newscasts about …. very stupid people who claim to have seen a leprechaun.
- Pepsi has released a Mountain Dew product spiked with “Electrolytes.” (That’s kind of a major Idiocracy plot point.)
It now makes perfect sense that elections are decided on the basis of one candidate accusing another of wanting to outlaw tampons, why campaigns are devoid of ideas and heavy on accusations of racism, and how our political leadership can make the decision that borrowing and printing limitless amounts of money is good economic policy.
I am just wondering how long evolution is going to put up with this.
